LAS Invitational Round 2

by brendan on 03/29/2012

I’m running a single elimination TV show tournament to determine what my next excuse will be for not going outside. This post is about Round 2, so be sure to read about Round 1 if you haven’t already.

Ladyfriend and I put out the popcorn over the weekend and got to watchin’.

The Walking Dead (AMC) vs. Justified (FX)

This turned out to be a pretty easy decision. Justified had to forfeit because you can’t stream it on Netflix or Hulu. It is available on Amazon Video, but not as part of my Amazon Prime all-you-can-stream subscription. It might have been for the best anyway, since I don’t know if Justified could have beaten the suspense of “will that guy shoot his zombie wife from his sniper post or won’t he” that The Walking Dead delivered.

Mad Men (AMC) vs. Game of Thrones (HBO)

Upset alert! To my surprise, anyway, the underdog Game of Thrones took down the number one seeded Mad Men. Mad Men was good, and I wanted to go on to the second episode if for no other reason than to learn why Zoey Bartlet kept trying to sleep with everybody. You’d think she’d know that Jeb wouldn’t approve of such strumpet behavior. But I’m not the only one with a vote in this competition. Thanks to Wikipedia and too much free time in her past, Ladyfriend already knew some of the Mad Men plot twists ahead. So those surprises were ruined for her. Plus we found out that Game of Thrones is based on a series of books, and nothing beats being able to dickishly say “the books were better” when somebody brings up a TV show. So Game of Thrones takes it, and I’ll just have to assume that Don Draper’s day drinking never catches up to him.
